Mergers and Acquisitions
The modern driving forces behind many of the company mergers or acquisitions in the United States and throughout the world include reasons such as economies of scale, economies of scope, synergies, market share, diversification and acquisition of new technologies.
Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) include a variety of transactions such as mergers, acquisitions, takeovers, tender offers, consolidations, asset purchases and management acquisitions. However, any merger and acquisition transaction involves two companies. These companies can be organized under the same jurisdiction or can be domiciled in different countries.
